Subject: Brilliant
An excellent song. The beginning sounds like something out of an old episode of "Tom and Jerry".

Subject: Billie Holiday
As far as I know Billie Holiday does the most famous/well known version of this song. It's even in an episode of The Simpsons. It is also known as "The Hungarian Suicide Song". But it's a great song no matter who does it.

Subject: Amazing song
Is this free to use in any manner? is it in the public domain? It's a fantastic song and I want to use it in a no-budget film.

Subject: attracted by an excellent cover
Great recording, though the gloomy effects are a bit much. :-) I first knew this song from an amazing cover by Canadian artist Danny Michel, which you can find here: http://www.dannymichel.com/Gloomy%20Sunday.mp3

Subject: Gloomy Sunday vs. Painted Black
The Rolling Stones have nothing on Paul Whiteman if the item I heard about Gloomy Sunday is true: that the song was banned from radio play because several suicides were attributed to it. There was a heavy depression still going on,lots of folks hurting mentally, spiritually.
Billie Holiday did a version a few years later, gloomier yet because of other issues.

Subject: I must find this 78
Never heard this before and I am fascinated by it. It's Dracula coming down the staircase for the first time, or the Frankenstein monster coming alive or Lawrence Talbot watching the hair on the back of his hands grow. I absolutly love it
